Default Bottlehead Paraglow Kit - unassembled

These kits are as new, still packed in the original shipping material with all assembly guides and images intact with one exceoption - one of the wooden chassis was assembled by the first owner (a friend of mine) and not done particularly well. It is probably repairable and certainly easily replaced at very little expense. Both top plates are untouched, which is the important thing. In addition to the stock kit contents you will also receive upgraded RCAs and binding posts (in addition to the originals, which are also included) as well as an upgraded pair of 2A3s (I'll confirm the brand and update the thread). For more information on the design please see here - http://www.bottlehead.com/et/adobesp...w/paraglow.htm.

The original cost of the kits was $1299 + shipping, I'd like to get $500/bo + shipping and given the weight of the package I will only deal with folks in the US. Plan on shipping costing $50 depending on location and carrier (which the buyer is free to specify). The one caveat is that if someone with a long list of demonstrated good feedback feels like paying the premium that international shipping will represent and assumes 100% of the risk I suppose I don't mind doing the customs paperwork. Payment must be through Paypal and to a verified address unless other arrangements are made as part of the negotiations. I'm not looking for anything in trade, that's how I got these and unfortunately my work schedule is going to preclude building them any time soon and I don't want to have to look at them and get depressed that I'm not in the lab having fun.

Please email any questions or offers and thanks for looking.

Nate

Wow!

Are these the 8 or 16 ohm versions?

I live near the boarder and have an American address for shipping... hmm...

Honestly I'm not sure about the output trafo windings, I'll look and see if I can figure it out.

The output trafos are the EXO-35Ni, which according to the parts list makes them the 16ohm version. It's not clear if the "Ni" suffix makes them the upgraded output trafos or simply the stock version.

The ni sufex on the transformers may means they are the nickel transformer.
These are much more expensive.
